I have been meaning to sign my six year-old daughter up for an optional science project at her elementary school, but they need a science project topic up front. Having been a judge for the Illinois Junior Academy of Science state science fair competition, I am familiar with what is needed at the junior high and high school levels. Picking a topic that would interest a six year old is a new challenge for me. And personally, I want to do something more exciting than testing dice probabilities or creating histograms of the number of colors in bags of M&Ms. I am looking to my wonderful readers for inspiration. Please leave a comment or email me with your ideas. Thank you!
